Daikin’s Reclaimed Refrigerant (R410a & R134a)

Daikin Singapore advocates Eco-friendly and Zero waste. This continuous green initiative has embarked us on using reclaimed refrigerants such as R410a & R134a in our processes.

Reclaimed refrigerants go through a much more thorough and intensive filtration process that removes impurities from used refrigerant and restores its purity level to meet international standards level (AHRI 700). Therefore making the reclaimed refrigerant reusable on any air-conditioning equipment.

Also, the reusing of reclaimed gas means that harmful gases generated in the production of a new gas is greatly reduced. In this way, the use of reclaimed refrigerant is more environment friendly and sustainable.

FAQ

Q: What are Reclaimed Refrigerants?
A: They are used refrigerants cleaned by means of filtration, distillation, separation or other mechanical processes.  As a result, our finished product meets the same standards as newly produced refrigerant.
Q: Does “Reclaimed Refrigerants” considered as green product?
A: Yes, refrigerant reclamation is a sustainable circle of recycling used refrigerant from the end of life refrigeration equipment.  It provides a refrigerant waste management solution to our environment which reduce tremendous amount of the GWP and ODP resulted by refrigerant gas venting issue.  In additional, the use of reclaimed refrigerant will also help to minimize the unnecessary production of new refrigerant (Hazardous Substances) to meet the market demand.
Q: What is the difference between reclaimed refrigerant and new refrigerant?
A: Both reclaimed refrigerant and new refrigerant must conform to the standard of AHRI-700 therefore, there is virtually no difference.
Q: Will the reclaimed refrigerant damage my equipment?
A: Reclaimed refrigerant that meet or exceed AHRI-700 standard will not cause any damage to your equipment. Reclaimed refrigerant is unlike recycled refrigerant. Recycling process is to simply remove and reduce contaminants, while reclamation process is to process the refrigerant to meet or exceed the standard of AHRI-700 standard (International Virgin Refrigerant Standard)
Q: Can I purchase reclaimed refrigerants from Daikin?
A: Yes, you can purchase from our spare parts centre. However, we have limited amount of stocks as recovered refrigerants are low locally. We hope to encourage more refrigerant recovery as an environmental effort instead of releasing into the atmosphere.
